When I saw the striated bands from afar, I was wondering what it was. But when I went nearer, I knew what happened.

Another tall Schizolobium parahyba (synonym: Caesalpinia parahyba, Cassia parahyba) which is commonly referred to as Tower Tree or Brazilian Fire Tree bit the dust. What remained on site was the saw dust from the cut tree. A link is shown below.

In addition, the Musa laterita (Family: Musaceae) clumps were so established but there was only a single flowering inflorescence.
